does any site have a prop bet for Roy Jones Jr to literally die in the ring?

Last time I was with a group of guys that chipped in on a Tyson ppv, there was about 10 seconds of Tyson chasing a white guy around the ring before the guy's manager threw in the towel. Sometime around 1995. I'm not really a boxing guy, but damn, there should at least be a fight if you're going to charge for it.

I never in my life thought this fight could happen, unless Mike Tyson had cancer or something.

That's the McNeely fight, Tyson's first after his three-year prison sentence.

I do not get this reference, but I would like to, partly because if the traveling genocide salesman.

I'd pay to watch Tyson box a genuine contender.  He may be in his 50s, but he looks unbelievable.  He'll never be as fast as we was at 20, but he's clearly put a huge amount of work into this bout.  So much so that it won't be worth watching.  Which is unfortunate.  A dollar per second is a bit steep.  If Jones lasts 2 minutes, he's had an impressive night.

I tried imagining Tyson in his prime, with skills in Jujitsu how he would be in the UFC. I pictured him just breaking faces left and right.

Problem is contenders now are all 6'4 and above, remember Lennox Lewis, tyson fury would laugh the whole fight unless tyson was able to get a lucky killer body shot

Wishful thinking won't make it not happen.

Eh, I might get it.  It might be a complete shiat  show.  I'm not expecting a good fight, but I may spend 50 just for the spectacle and chance of batshiattery

Spend money on a boxing PPV?

Nope

20 year old Tyson at peak peak-a-boo form would have eaten the tall rangy guys for lunch. Mike's headwork and footwork in the Cus days were unbelievable, before you knew it he was in the pocket, underneath the tall guys and throwing those devastating sledgehammer uppercut-hook combos.

Later in his career... yeah. Probably. Once Cus died he lost that defensive edge. And once he was hit table, he was just another heavy handed heavyweight.

Mike probably gets a bonus check at the end of every round, as long has Roy hasn't submitted.
